It is Apple iPhone 7 which did the job and not only the fiasco of Note 7. An incredible phone at an incredible time. RIP Note 7 and hopefully and soon Samsung.

It was the best phone out if problems hadn't had happened with it. Samsung is going no where. Besides we should be glad Apple and Samsung compete with each other it just make what ever phone we like better.

Apple and Samsung focus on marketing a lot. Other companies not so much.

I'm curious of what Samsung would bring to the table with S8.

LIES. This has nothing to do with the Note 7. They were going to do that anyways.
